Router Plane #2: Spalted Birch Router Plane

04-09-2021 08:02 PM by MikeB_UK | 4 comments »

Going with a traditional hag’s tooth design, so iron is at a high angle, works closer to a scraper than a plane. Just used for the final finish after a chisel. Grab a likely looking chunk of wood, spalted birch in this case.The log behind is elder if this goes wrong :) Clean it up to more or less the right shape. Couple of suspicious looking cracks, so I’ll have to split it off there as well. Work out the angle for the iron, doesn’t need to be too scientific, plough planes have a ...

Router Plane #1: Low angle beech router

04-09-2021 07:30 PM by MikeB_UK | 5 comments »

Well, not so much low as low for a traditional router plane. Traditional high angle router planes are great for final clean-up of a grove or dado, but sometimes you want one that takes off more stock.For that you need a lower angle on the blade, something more like a standard plane, so about 45 degrees. First thought was grab a likely looking piece of beech.However, I’ve got nothing thick enough so I’ll have cut to length and glue it up. Square it up and plane 45(ish) degree chamfer....

Renovating A Delta 34 410 Contractor Table Saw

03-28-2021 11:27 AM by Madoc | 0 comments »

Hello all! Kicking things off here with the renovation of the Delta 34 410 Contractor Table Saw I just picked up on Craig’s List. Cleaning it up will be the first order of business. Unsticking the blade angle gearing is part of that. The gearing can get to 45 degrees but only with lotsa torqueing it once past 30 degrees or so. That’s not right so I gotta dig in to the guts of it. Once cleaned up I’ll be checking its runout and making changes from there. I̵...

Handy tools #12: Fixed 3/8" marking gauge

11-14-2020 05:15 PM by Dave Polaschek | 11 comments »

Simple, but for every bookcase I build, I need to cut a dozen 3/8” wide & deep rabbets. Which means marking two dozen lines 3/8” from the edge of a board. I was initially using my fixed fence kerfing plane, but then I broke that by knocking it off my bench, which gave me an opportunity to rethink things. Since I’ve been practicing turning things with my lathe, I’ve got a bunch of round things. I took one of them, put a fence on it (another scrap) and then put a brass bra...

Simple Router Circle Jig

03-28-2020 01:43 AM by Axis39 | 0 comments »

Simple might still be overstating things… I needed to make a circular hole in a speaker baffle at a hair over 9”. I love using templates with my routers… But, I needed to make an accurate template. I hate taking the screws out of my router bottom plates… I’m always losing the screws! So, I contemplated. Made a few starts. Then, was suddenly hit with inspiration! I have a little battery operated Ridgid Trim Router that I use for soooo many thing...

Cabinet Table Saw

01-24-2020 04:16 PM by thecrus8r | 11 comments »

Greetings, I am in the market for a new table saw, specifically a table saw with a large enough surface space to safely push larger pieces of lumber through. From what I have come across on my own would be some form of a cabinet table saw. Would anyone have some affordable NEW, not used, recommendations that are south of $2k? Projects include, but not limited to, the following: - eat-in benches- pull out trash/recycle bins- simple cabinets- box frames- floating shelves- table tops/en...

Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #17: Gents Saw Upgrade

01-19-2020 01:34 AM by Bill Berklich | 3 comments »

After seeing the Youtube video on this I really wanted to try it out myself. So I started with a Two Cherries Gents Saw that’s been laying around collecting dust. I pulled the handle – and reused it as a file handle. Then cut/trim the plate. I used a Blackburn Tools handle pattern and pasted it on a 4/4 slab of Marblewood and cut the basic shape on the bandsaw. Lots of work with rasps, files, and sandpaper brought the hand to shape the came the critical cut. The sli...

Grizzly 18” bandsaw parts??

07-07-2019 03:02 PM by Marshall1 | 2 comments »

Have the opportunity to buy a 18” 1988 vintage, 2hp band saw but needs blade guide. I can not fine the model number on the machine but the motor appears original and is dated 1988. Anyone know if the blade guide would be available from a aftermarket supplier?
